Role Reversal Questions


What are your thoughts regarding a wife being the bread winner and a husband staying home with the children. I make significantly more money than my husband so it appears to make sense financially for me to work. However, I am struggling with resentment and a lack of respect for my husband because he does not provide financially. I often feel stressed and overburdened and I think that he should have the role of provider (even if he will always make less than I do). While I have several friends with role reversals in their marriage that appear to be flourishing, this is not the case for our family.

In your opinion, is it unwise for a wife to take on the role of breadwinner while her husband stays home with the children? Or, do you think this unconventional arrangement is a healthy and viable option? What is the effect of role reversal in a marriage on the children?
